Equivu Capital Launches NextGen Deicing

Deicing Firm Boasts Top Talent and Tech

Private investment firm Equivu Capital Holdings announced on 21 June 2023 that it had launched NextGen Deicing, a full-service aircraft deicing concern headed up by aviation industry veteran Jon Savage.

By virtue of his two-plus decades in the aircraft deicing business, Mr. Savage will ensure NextGen Deicing consistently realizes its ambition to leverage up-to-the-minute deicing technologies and techniques, including eco-friendly anti and deicing agents, for purpose of protecting lives, preserving assets, and decreasing air-carriers’ winter operating costs while maintaining a high-standard of environmental stewardship.

NextGen Deicing strives to ensure every aircraft it treats departs safely and without delay. The company’s emphasis on employee safety is evinced by a comprehensive training program and the very-best, eminently proven aircraft deicing technologies.

NextGen’s deicing trucks can be used in single operator mode, thereby halving labor costs.

Prior to joining NextGen Deicing, Mr. Savage oversaw deicing industry startups and served as general manager of deicing services at Wisconsin’s Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE), North Carolina’s Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT), Pennsylvania’s Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), and Texas’s Dallas Fort Worth Airport (DFW).

Over the winter of 2020-21—which saw the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex hit with a record-setting six-day snow-and-ice storm—Mr. Savage managed fifty deice trucks and 275 employees collectively tasked with deicing upwards of eight-hundred daily flights departing DFW.

Mr. Savage’s experience and expertise is complemented that of Equivu Capital founder and CEO Salvatore C. Calvino, whose C.V. includes ownership of Integrated Deicing Services (IDS)—a major deicing concern that employed no fewer than 4,200 workers when Calvino sold it in 2015.

Mr. Calvino set forth: “NextGen Deicing will quickly become the go-to partner for airports nationwide to effectively manage their deicing challenges, leveraging our deep expertise and state-of-the-art equipment. With Jon’s [Savage] dedication, knowledge, and strong track-record running highly-successful deicing operations, he is the ideal executive to head up NextGen Deicing.”
